These attacks are rarely waged over real doctrinal subjects since most church members know very little real doctrine in the first place! The church wants a pastor who can fix the problems of the congregation-social, emotional, marital, financial, and spiritual. In previous generations the minister was understood to be the “man of God.” He handled the Word and cared for the souls of his people.They are usually aimed at the pastor’s inability to keep the entire flock happy and positive toward his overall ministry. Today if he is truly successful, he is more likely to be the manager of a local corporation. Pastors are weak human instruments who must be filled with divine authority.We may still confess the same creeds and statements of faith, but we do not confess them in a way that makes a real differenceeason ministers have lost their way is not hard to find. We actually think the Gospel is a message that is primarily about putting lives back together. There is no other way to accomplish the true work of pastoral ministry.There is no vivid sense of otherworldliness among us. True authority never comes from within our human persona or from the office (or gifting) itself, but from a divinely given mandate and from a scripturally based message.[This quotation comes from a longer statement called The Preacher’s Mandate and is used by permission of The Cornerstone Trust, Box 1906, Cave Creek, Arizona 85327]: The Preacher’s Mandate Pray as though nothing of eternal value is going to happen unless God does it.Prepare as giving “my utmost for his highest.” Seek not to “get a message” from the scripture, but seek “the message” of the scripture.
